Venue: Trylon microcinema
Through the eyes, words and songs of its popular music stars of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, "Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock and Roll" examines and unravels Cambodia’s tragic past. Combining interviews with surviving musicians and never-before-seen archival material and rare songs, the film tracks the winding course of Cambodian music as it morphs into a unique style of rock and roll. A vibrant musical culture that was nearly lost forever under the brutal Khmer Rouge regime is revived and celebrated.
Dir. John Pirozzi, 2014, USA/Cambodia, In English, Khmer and French w/Eng. Subtitles, 106 min, Blu-Ray
